How To Plan Your Office Party
Planning a perfect office party in Las Vegas? No worries. Check out these cool local venues for every taste and group size. Most of them also have professional meeting planners that will help you order the right catering and other supplies needed to make your party rock (and your boss finally to offer you the promotion.)
Meet Las Vegas. If you already have an idea or theme for your event and need a customizable space that can make it happen, Meet is your best bet. This downtown venue will transform itself inside and out (with LED lighting of the exterior) for you. The three-story space and an outdoor pavilion can accommodate up to 2,000 people for a reception. It offers in-house catering, audio/visual and furniture rental.
Town Square. This retail and entertainment complex in the heart of the city offers several great restaurants, including Lolita's Cantina & Tequila Bar, which offers modern Mexican fare and handcrafted margaritas and specialty cocktails. It can seat up to 375 for dinner, or 700 for a reception and is available for full buyout. Pete’s Dueling Pianos is a great place for a smaller party (up to about 150 people) filled with live music.
For a charity holiday event, consider the new Keep Memory Alive event center at the The Cleveland Clinic Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health. The 9,800 sq ft center can accommodate about 650 people for a cocktail reception and around 400 for a sit-down banquet. The venues, as well as the interior, are unique and meaningful, which makes it a perfect spot for events with a cause.
Looking for old-school Vegas flair? Try newly remodeled El Cortez Hotel & Casino. This property originally opened in 1941 now features retro-style suites inspired by South Beach Miami. Same goes for their new banquet room that seats up to 300.
Coworkers want to feel like rock stars for the night? Get the ultimate in Vegas private venues – signature suites at the Palms. The 2,350 sq ft Barbie suite, inspired by Mattel's doll, holds 50 people in a girlie atmosphere including a sunburst-style mirror made from 65 reproduction 1959 Black & White Bathing Suit Barbie dolls. Or how about a 10,000 sq ft Hardwood suite with an indoor basketball half-court?
For a traditional holiday reception in a custom space, try Oquendo Center. The in-house meetings team will work with you to create the custom environment at this contemporary venue and book the right catering.
Once the venue is picked, don’t forget to book a live band or a DJ. Or just hire a Las Vegas event production company to deal with the details.
